Tulio and Kara:
I am not exactly sure who to direct this email to, but I just wanted to let somebody know how much help Bill Cox and Vern Huber have been to the Survey Research Office over the past several weeks. The SRO is installing a new software for our CATI lab and both Bill and Vern have gone out of their way to help us successfully install this program-including spending the majority of their morning and lunch in this office today.
I would be at a loss without them and cannot express my gratitude enough.
Just wanted to make sure that someone knew about their hard work.
Thanks and have a great holiday weekend!

Users have begun noticing that they are unable to obtain an IP address after authenticating on UISWiFi. Kevin noticed that the scopes are full and is trying to resolve the issue.
Farokh, Tulio, & Kara:
I wanted to be sure and let you know how much I appreciate the technical support provided by your staff for our annual Convocation event (as well as for our other major campus events). It is not only their technical expertise, but their positive attitudes and flexibility that make my job so much easier. We certainly could not produce such seamless events without individuals like Ian and Dale.

We will be migrating all users to Lync 2013 on Thursday morning. There should be no noticeable impact on users. If they are connected to Lync during the time of the migration, Lync will log them out and log them right back in. It happens in seconds, so we are not anticipating anyone even noticing.
Once everyone is migrated successfully, we will send out an announcement to the campus letting them know about the new features and directing them to the Lync webpage for more information, which has been updated to reflect the changes in Lync 2013, and encouraging them to attend a workshop.
We will also encourage users to install Lync 2013 (which they can get from the WebStore for free) so that they can take advantage of the new features.
Blackboard will be unavailable from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. on Thursday (August 15, 2013) for maintenance.
